This is my review of the new Karate Kid movie â€œThe Karate Kid 2010â€.Â Itâ€™s almost identical in every way to the original. Â It has a new cast and a new location.Â The script had to adjust a little because of the location but the story remains the sameâ€¦young kid moves with mom to new location and is attacked by bullies and learns how to defend himself and wins respect from bullies â€¦. Â
I loved this movie more than the original because of the location.Â I get to travel through the streets of Beijing, China and across the China countryside without a passport or having to buy an expensive ticket.Â The photography was spectacular and I enjoyed my journey very much.Â
Dre, played by Jaden Smith, did an excellent job in recreating the old Daniel role (played by Ralph Macchio in the original movie) and Mr. Han (played by Jackie Chan) was a younger version of the original Mr. Miyagi role (played by Pat Morita).Â If you enjoyed the original Karate Kid movie then you will love the new version.
